Big Hero 6 (2014)I will not deny that BH6 is a successful movie, good even! However,… More I will not deny that BH6 is a successful movie, good even! However, its success has no flavor and If anything is a little too methodical for my palette, everything from the character archetypes to the story just seems like it was concocted in a lab of professional formulaic storytelling for a very specific general/family audience. The visuals are right on the spot, even for a Disney production there are a lot of improvements here over their recent works though. From environments, to cinematography and character design it does look more refined. The story is thrilling, touching, imaginative and has all the elements you need to engage your average Joe. It's not the most ambitious endeavor as far as theme exploration goes but it's not very reserved either for a Disney production (characters actually dying and it being recognized? The protagonist briefly seeks murder as vengeance? Uncharacteristically dark and I like it.) So all in all there's really nothing much to complain about, just nothing to give it praise for either which kind of lands the film in the twilight zone of forgettability. (Not a word, I know) Baymax and Hiro aren't iconic enough to go down as Disney legends with the princess' or Peter Pan. The same goes for the colorful but carefully crafted support characters like Wasabi, Gogo, Honeylemon and Fred. All representing a body/archetype that goes along with pleasing today's modern social guidelines. It's an exhausting practice that seems to go out of it's way to please as many of today's people as possible, while incapable of having a stylistic hallmark. However it is a step forward from a creatively stagnant studio.
